Get a license to build with the awesome LEGO Creator Expert 10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5. This impressive car replica model captures the elegance and timeless sophistication of Agent 007’s iconic 1964 sports car, and comes with a wealth of authentic details and functioning gadgetry. Open the doors and you’ll discover a detailed interior with a concealable radar tracker and a door compartment containing a telephone. And when it’s time for action, activate the passenger ejection seat, turn the rotating license plate, raise the rear-window bullet shield, deploy the wheel-mounted tire scythes and pull back the stick shift to reveal the front gun activator. This collectible model car also features straight-6 engine detailing beneath the hood, opening trunk, opening doors, drum-lacquered silver front and rear bumpers, molded silver-colored wire wheel rim inserts, front and rear Aston Martin logos and a set of golf clubs. This James Bond collectible construction toy has been designed to provide a challenging and rewarding building experience full of nostalgia—a must-have for fans of the Aston Martin James Bond movies and LEGO building sets.
Unbelievable! Absolutely the best Lego set I have ever tried! Takes 3-4 hours for a Lego veteran to assemble. Full of features and looks unusually realistic. As a Bond fan, particularly the Connery era, I would be very critical of a goofy or ham-handed attempt, but this is really good. I've included photos of each different feature to show what they do, but the real fun is going through the assembly to discover for yourself how they work. A brief list: Front machine guns behind lights Rear window bulletproof shield Revolving front and rear license plates Ejector seat with retracting roof plate (actually is probably a better design than the actual car, which left you with a hole in the roof IIRC) Radar display Red telephone inside the driver's door Opening bonnet and boot, with classic British straight-six inside the former Chrome details As usual, Lego provides multiple spares of some of the more easily loseable parts, and will replace any missing ones upon request (one minor part missing from my kit).
I hadn't bought legos in a while (34 year old men should really have a massive need for themselves), but I'm a James Bond nerd, so this was a must-have. It probably took somewhere between 10-12 hours to assemble over 3-4 nights (non consecutive. In the end, there were only two small parts missing (covers for the pegs on the rotating machine gun turrets behind the front lights). This was only discovered at the end of the build, but it was not by any means a fatal flaw. Enjoyed the challenge of the assembly (and a few small disassembles to make some corrections). A great guy for the James Bond aficianado.
This was really fun to build. The model is very solid feeling with lots of cool features. Definitely worth the money. Here are the only cons in my opinion: I had trouble with the ejection seat mechanism. Even though I tested the function throughout the build progress to ensure it was still working smoothly, and it was, for some reason by the time the model was complete, there was an issue. The red "flipper" assembly from step 58 that ejects the seat would not reset after releasing the middle section of the bumper. As I jiggled the mechanism to try to get the flipper to reset, the blue 1x4 flat tile from step 52 came dislodged with no easy way to put it back without lots of disassembly, so I simply removed it. I think it got hung up on the 2x8 plate from step 64. Ironically, however, the ejection seat now works flawlessly without that piece in place. Go figure... The retractable roof section that goes over the ejection seat also tends to get hung up on the 1x2 plate with slide from step 246 when you try to use the ejection set mechanism. Even though I knew about this before purchasing, I do find it disappointing that they didn't come up with a way to deploy the tire scythes (instead, you have to manually assemble them and attach them). Just thought that was odd, given all the other features.
This was a fun model to make! I do have a suggestion or two for LEGO if they ever read these things! One, using color pictures as instructions is fine, as long as you accurately depict the colors used to make the pieces. They should improve the color depiction of the dark gray and light gray blocks, and develop a system to designate silver and clear pieces: they look gray in the instructions. Lastly, why couldn't they make the "wheel shredders" on Bonds car so you could pull them in and out? Compared to all the other neat things they accomplished on this model, that seems like it would be an easy thing for them to do!! Aside from that, this is a great Lego project, and I had a lot of fun assembling it. I am in my 60's, so don't assume these things are just for kids! Enjoy it. By the way, I purchased the after market lighting kit made by Lightailing. It was a great addition, though not cheap, and rather complex to figure out how to install properly. I left a review on it seperately.
Got this for my husband and he LOVES it. Is it possible to create a lego 007 person to put in the seat? Also, anyone know where to get a plexiglass box or plastic box to put this car in or cover to free from dust? Thanks if you do!
I love this set, I used to build Lego sets and contraptions from age 4-13 and quit until I was 21 and found myself in love with the challenging adult builds. A friend of mine built the Mustang and I was quickly intrigued. It sits perfect on my drawer with my other model cars and it has all the gadgets advertised. The only slight disappointment was the lack of steering which doesn't matter too much since the gadgets make up for that missing feature. I also suggest making wheel stops out of spare parts only because it has fallen off of my drawer. Overall a great display car and something to gaze at every now and then.
I loved putting this together. The build is varied and has a lot of unique techniques. It certainly was challenging too, and it was worth it, because the finished model is very attractive and all the play functions work reasonably well. The only reason I am giving this four stars is because one of the printed silver front grille tiles was misprinted, and the decal was on the underside of the piece instead of the top. I've NEVER had this happen in a LEGO purchase until now. This makes the final model look off, and I am hoping to acquire a replacement part soon.
